Tuesday 6th September in The Castle Hotel saw the announcement of the bursary winners and presentation of €1000 to each of the 6 lucky students. The winners were drawn from a hat with the draw being overseen by board member of the credit union and the school principals in attendance.
The lucky winners were as follow:
Ann Cronin – McEgan College
Katie O’Sullivan – Coachford College
Sorcha O’Sullivan – Scoil Mhuire Balligeary
Deirdre Ni Lionaird – Colaiste Ghobnatan
Conor Flanagan – De La Salle
Niamh Dineen – St Marys
While college had started for some of our winners and they were unfortunately unable to attend, some prizes were collected by their parents or siblings on the night.
Macroom Credit Union was delighted with the response to the first year of these awards and fully intends to continue this bursary scheme for further years. The large turnout on the night was testament to the fact that further education is important in the community and our local students are investing time in their future.
